Dabbang has become a franchise led by Salman Khan. With two films of the franchise in 2010 and 2012 becoming a hit, it was no surprise that there will be third in the pipeline.
On being asked about when Dabbang will be out, director of the previous two installments, Arbaaz Khan said, “The shooting of the film will start next year hopefully depending on the schedule of his brother, Salman and available dates in his packed schedule.”
As we all know, Salman Khan has recently wrapped up shooting for Kabir Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ and will soon be shooting for ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ alongside ex-flame, Katrina Kaif. So Dabbang 3, which is said to be a prequel of Dabbang (2010), will only go on floors sometime next year.
There has been no other official confirmation about the movie cast except that Chulbul Pandey will be reprised by Sallubhai, obviously. The name of the heroine in the film is under constant scanner. While the Rajjo, Sonakshi Sinha of previous Dabbang films thinks it will be her for sure, there is news that Amy Jackson has been offered a role opposite Salman Khan.
There was also a buzz that there is a special friendship between Salman Khan and Amy Jackson and that she was supposed to star in ‘Kick’ instead of Jacqueline Fernandes. But as that didn’t materialize, it seems she will be seen in Dabbang 3 opposite Khan.
